Region championships Next » 1 of 22 « Prev
The next two weeks will be crammed with meaningful games for postseason qualifying and seeding and for determining region champions.

No schools have claimed outright titles yet, and only four teams, all undefeated in their respective regions, own at least a share of a league championship: Logan (Region 5), Juan Diego (3AA North), Manti (3A South) and Beaver (2A South).

All but Beaver play non-region games this week, so must wait to grab region honors outright until Week 10.

If Diamond Ranch defeats Kanab in DR’s final region game this week, the Diamondbacks will claim the outright 1A South title. Should Kanab prevail, the Cowboys still have to beat Monticello next week for the outright crown.

Nine others can at least snare a share of their league crown with wins this week: Davis (Region 1), Taylorsville (Region 2), Bingham (Region 3), Herriman (Region 4), East (Region 6), Timpview (Region 8), Dixie (3AA South), and North Summit and the winner of South Summit at Millard (2A North).

(More on these region champions, and potential champs later.)

Region 7, notably absent from the above-mentioned regions, has three one-loss teams at the top and could end in a three-way tie.

Just curious, if the last two place teams in both regions in 2A are tied, would they not determine the 6th place for each region by the head to head match instead of having a region playoff game? Not sure why they would have to have a playoff if the two teams have played and one was the winner already. Can you please clarify for me? Thanks.
